Vancouver is about to get an authentic motorcycle cafe.

Jammer Cafe Motors is slated to open at 350 West 8 Avenue in the fall, and it’s going to be more than just a motor-themed spot to grab a hot cup of Joe.

The new Mount Pleasant venue will continue the burgeoning trend where brands house multiple concepts under one roof.

Ryan Valade, the owner and director of the concept, told Daily Hive that Jammer will be a full-service restaurant, a coffee shop, a microbrewery tasting room, a retail area, and a motorcycle garage too.

“We are creating a theatre to the lifestyle and craft of motorcycle building,” says Valade.

Valade also described the 5,400-sq-ft space as a “community workshop and live stage” for motorcycle enthusiasts.

The cafe will feature beans from Pallet Coffee along with a menu of breakfast, lunch and evening plates, which were developed by Chef David Martin (Il Giardino, Hawksworth, Glowbal, TenTen Tapas).

Dishes up for order will include a ham and cheese breakfast croissant, a variety of salads and sandwiches, and weekly features like fried chicken, meatloaf, and spaghettini and meatballs.

As for beer, Jammer has teamed up with Red Collar Brewing from Kamloops BC, who have made the Mount Pleasant spot their official tasting room in Vancouver.

The cafe area will be separated from the motorcycle building, restoration, and repairs by large glass windows, naturally, to ensure food safety standards.

When asked what makes this motorcycle cafe authentic, Valade said it’s all about the experience.

“What I can say we’ve done that nobody else has done, is combine a restaurant that allows the clientele to watch the actual full repairs and restoration process from the comfort of their seats.”

The garage section of the space will feature mechanical repairs and full motorcycle service by Red Seal mechanics, rentable benches so patrons can do their own repairs, and a parts desk for ordering all your motorcycle needs.

With a heavy emphasis on community, Jammer will showcase “the builders, their rides, and their stories” by shining a spotlight on a new bike weekly, and this includes rare bikes of locals and “famous builders around the world.”

The cafe and urban garage are currently under construction expected to open in the fall of this year, we’ll keep you posted on more details as they come.
